Sony’s Deadly Strike: Kazuo Hirai’s Restructuring Plan Includes Cutting 10,000 Positions

Sony CEO, Kazuo Hirai, plans to cut an estimated 10,000 Jobs in Sony’s Restructuring Plan

Sony CEO, Kazuo Hirai announced that Sony will be cutting 6% of its workforce due to their restructuring plans.  They plan to roll this out over the next two years, extending into March 2014.  We were kind of expecting this with many of Sony’s business units fluttering and the reinvestment into Sony’s TV operations with Hirai cutting an entire layer of management so he can more effectively have visibility into their televisions business.

Kazuo is trying to make Sony as nimble as Bruce Li – even though they still have 162,000 Global employees – whoa.
